I'm a Ph.D. candidate at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, advised by Prof. Chester Rebeiro. My research interests are broadly in the area of secure systems design, with a specific focus on micro-architecture level solutions against various attacks against cryptographic implementations, such as cache side-channel attacks, memory corruption attacks. I'm also interested in exploring the applications of AI to help in building secure systems.

I was one among the 12 candidates across the world to present my research at Lenovo AI Innovation Challenge at SuperComputing Conference 2017, Denver, Colorado. I was also one of the three-member team from IIT Madras that won the First Place in the CSAW Embedded Security Challenge 2016.
